I had a pro do my prom makeup. The handful of magazines available at the time had prom beauty editorials that didn’t really teach 15-year-olds much. Now though, you can find any makeup tutorial on YouTube and Pinterest. DIY makeup for prom or graduation isn’t just doable, it’s actually preferable if, like me, you don’t like it too heavy! Here are two easy-peasy looks you can do for your prom or graduation: romantic and smoky makeup.
Sweet makeup tutorial

Sultry makeup tutorial
In partnership with L’Oréal Paris. It’s a more daring prom makeup look involving subtle smoky eyes and bold lips, if that’s more your style.
Prom (or graduation) makeup essentials
Shopping for makeup was a trial-and-error process for me. I knew next to nothing about getting the right products for the look I want, let alone for my features. If you just started experimenting with makeup, maybe I can help! I created a list of my makeup essentials to start you with.
